Photo of the Week #191
It’s not every night I’ll witness a New York Knick score 62 points in a basketball game. In fact, I won’t see it once a year or even once a decade. When Carmelo Anthony scored 62 points against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night, it was the first time a player had accomplished the feat in the team’s 68-year history. The previous Knicks record belonged to Bernard King, who scored 60 points on Christmas Day in 1984. Anthony also eclipsed Kobe Bryant’s Madison Square Garden record of 61 points. The last time any NBA player scored at least 62 points in a game? It was Bryant with 65 back in 2007.
